Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σάββατον to denote the Heb. Sabbath is first found in the LXX. In the Pentateuch and elsewhere the plur. τὰ σάββατα is used both for ";the Sabbath"; and ";the sabbaths"; : see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 35. In the LXX the dat. plur. is usually σαββάτοις, but in the critical text of the NT the form σάββασι occurs frequently : cf. πρόβασι for προβάτοις in P Lond 1171.38 (B.C. 8) (= III. p. 178), and similar exx. in Psaltes Gr. p. 176. For the significance of the added clause μηδὲ σαββάτῳ in Matthew 24:20 see Boll Offenbarung, p. 134. n..1
